première of the new film Inside the Circle

VIDEOSPRITZ_ international encounters of video art and documentary films

RAVE is proud to announce the European première of the new film of ADRIAN PACI Inside the Circle. The video will be presented at Trieste Contemporanea for its new VIDEOSPRITZ appointment on Thursday, September 6th, 2012, at 7pm. The film was conceived and developed by the Albanian-born artist during his 2011 RAVE Residency in Trivignano.

Shot in black and white and set inside a training ring, the 6 minute film explores the complex dynamics between man, animal and nature through an interaction between a horse and a young woman. It plays with elements which take the work into a dimension of suspension in time and space. The RAVE East Village Artist Residency project was lauched in 2011, being L’Officina of Trieste and the Trieste Contemporanea Committee contributing partners. At the meeting in Trieste RAVE will present the book Adrian Paci Rave Residency 2011 published by Vulcano.

Adrian Paci’s Inside the Circle is a six-and-a-half-minute, black and white movie of interactions between a white horse and its trainer in a round, rustic pen.
The trainer, as it happens, is a remarkably attractive woman, and like the horse, she is naked. Human time dances with animal time.
